Depends on where the cable broke. You may have to get under the car and use a wire to reach up to the latch and open it.

first of all not an easy job,you need to get the front grill off and look upwards for a cover that will be covering up the bonnet catch,basicly bend or pull this off,you should then see were the cable goes in,then you should be able to bar the catch with a screwdriver to release it. best of luck

SOURCE: Bonnet release cable is broken - how do I open the

remove the o/s/f indicator this can be done by putting a thin screw driver between the bonnet and wing to push the indicator release tab down. once the indicator is out of the way you can see the bonnet catch behind the headlamp use a torch to locate where the cable should be and pull the latch towards you. it should take you about 10 mins to do this

How to open zetec bonnet with a broken pull lever


From the bottom. Few times have I seen it broke at the latch. Reach up and cut the cable in half( as far as you can away from the latch). Then cut a couple inches of the cable sheathing of at the latch side. expose the cable, then pull the cable to open. If it did break at the latch, then you'll need a long pick(right angle or hook). You'll have to reach up in the latch to grab the arm to release the bonnet.

If my cable to open the bonnet has snapped how do i open my bonnet


depends on where it snapped.
If it is accessible under the dash, clamp some vice-grips on it and pull.
If it is broken somewhere under the bonnet it gets a lot trickier as you'll need to find a way to trip the latch. Reply as a comment if we need to explore that.

How do i fix broken bonnet cable on s type jaguar 2003 model


You will need to reach up from underneath and either locate the latch and pull it or grip the cable near the latch and pull that to try and release the bonnet catch!

Replace the bonnet latch


you need to first check if the fault is the bonnet release cable or the latch if you cant get the bonnet open try to apply pressure to the release cable and have an assistant apply light pressure to the underside of the bonnet front lip once you get the bonnet open spray heaps of penetrating lubricant into the latch and try to operate it (without closing the bonnet )a few times that will usually free them up always lube the latch when servicing if it cannot be freed up you should be able to see the 10 mm headed bolts that retain the latch inn place

Broken latch cable for bonnet


you don't have many options right now, here is what you can try.

if the cable broke on the dash end, try to removing the release latch from the dash and grab the remaining part of the cable with locking pliers.

if the cable broke at the hood latch end. you will need to pry the latch open in the same direction that the cable release operates.
this might be possible with a long flat screw driver with the grill in place. to accomplish this try finding photos of the latch online to see how the mechanism operates. there will be two levers one with the cable attached the other is the safety. the cable lever needs to be released for the hood to open

How to open bonnet on 2003 toyota corrolla when cable release is broken


this is a lot easier said than done. the easiest way that i know and have done is gain access to the cable closest to the handle, this seems to be the most common place a cable breaks, the next would be at the latch itself. very rarely do the break in the middle. any way, gain access to the cable and cut it. once you have cut it peel off the plastic protective coating. after this is done it you should see the outer steel shell that houses the cable. most of these outer shells are not solid but more of a tight coil configuration. with a good pair of pliers you can "unravel" the outer shell to gain access to the inner cable. hold the outer cable with pliers and using another pair of pliers pull the inner cable and the hood latch should release. this is the easiest way to do it with out chewing your hands up

Bonnet cable broken, how to open bonnet


The cable can break either at the left or right hand latch - if you are lucky as I was, the cable operating the left hand catch was the broken one, and was broken near the right hand latch release mechanism.
I was able to open the right hand latch with the bonnet release from inside thecar.
You then have to get a piece of fairly strong wire(I used a 2.8mm welding rod) and bend a fairly tight hook in one end. Using a torch so you can see the bonnet release cable, feed the wire in through the grill and hook the swage on the end of the cable that operated the left hand latch. A frim pull on the wire should then release the left hand latch.
Good luck!
